The Queensland public sector is committed to supporting all employees, and creating an inclusive and diverse workforce that better reflects the community we serve.
The Queensland public sector LGBTIQ+ inclusion strategy (PDF, 1.73 MB) provides a framework for strengthening LGBTIQ+ inclusion across the public sector.
The strategy outlines a commitment to:
- maintain a cross-agency LGBTIQ+ steering committee to promote and support inclusion initiatives
- maintain an LGBTIQ+ employee network which provides LGBTIQ+ employees, their friends and allies with opportunities to connect, share information, and foster a supportive work environment.
- sector-wide participation in community events, including Brisbane Pride March and International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOT)
- policies that allow employees in same-sex relationships equal entitlements to leave, including parental, surrogacy and adoption leave, superannuation and domestic and family violence support.
